Rilee is the female husky I have been fostering for Last Hope Animal Rescue. She LOVES water and has a blast playing in creeks and swimming. So last weekend, I decided to take her out on the lake. I held my breath as the phone rang, scared of the answer I would receive from Lake Macbride rentals when I asked, "Are dogs allowed?". "Sure!" they replied positively. Bingo! We immediately went out to Petsmart, bought a vest and after a terrifying five minutes nearly tipping over in a canoe, we switched to a paddleboat and went on our way.

As you can tell from the video, Rilee clearly enjoyed the adventure. Not only is Rilee a swimmer, she loves to cuddle and is very affectionate.
